Booking information

Honeyguide doesn't take internet bookings - we'd prefer to talk to you - but you can certainly register your interest in a holiday by e-mail to chris@honeyguide.co.uk or phone 01603 300552.

Please e-mail, phone, write or go to 'contact us' to get your Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays brochure, which has a booking form, booking details and much more.

You can also download two type of booking forms here.

The first is a traditional paper booking form and booking details, here.

The second is a 'form field PDF'. First, download the form and save it on your computer. Second, complete the form on your computer, and save it. Third, you then email the completed form. This is ideal for Honeyguide regulars as the form can then be updated for future bookings, without the need to re-write most of the details, such as names, addresses, passport details, if they are unchanged.

A paperless booking is therefore possible by emailing the 'form field PDF' or a scan of a written booking form and paying your deposit by bank-to-bank transfer. Please ask us for details.

Airport hotels and parking

Our experience is that Holidays Extras gives a good service and a keen price for airport hotels and parking (but see right about Luton Airport parking). Honeyguide's Holiday Information sheets also offer other ideas for accommodation at Gatwick; Honeyguide leaders usually stay at The Corner House Hotel www.thecornerhouse.co.uk tel 01293 784574 in Horley.

Health

We recommend that that anyone on medication or with a medical allergy (e.g. antibiotics) takes full details on holiday, written so it can be read by a foreign pharmacist. We would prefer to have any information that will help us to help you on the holiday.

To make it easy to record medical information, you can download and complete our medical report form (PDF format). The same form in Word is here: that can be downloaded and it may be easier if you wish to type or cut-and-paste information.

Frequently Asked Questions
■ Hold luggage: when flights are booked for you, as they are for nearly all Honeyguiders, we also book one item of hold luggage. This is almost always up to 20kg (yes, even Ryanair, and we pay the extra charge for that).

■ Speedy boarding or the equivalent and meals are not normally included, with some exceptions (e.g. South Africa).

Reserved seats: this varies from airline to airline. It's increasingly common now, e.g. seats are allocated as part of the check-in process for EasyJet and Ryanair.

■ Passort details: The Honeyguide booking form collects Advance Passenger Information (API), namely date of birth, passport numbers, issue dates and expiry dates, which in turn is needed by airlines.


Parking at Luton: what’s offered through Holiday Extras is five miles away and beyond the M1, so seriously inconvenient especially if you’re coming from the east. A choice of short, mid or long stay car parks are offered via www.londonlutonparking.com with significant savings for booking in advance.
